This recipe was given to me by a co-worker's mother who lives in Alabama. It is a refreshing cake that is a big hit everytime I make it! It is very easy to prepare and the results are amazing! The cake usually takes a little longer in a 13x9 pan and the outside of the cake will brown just a bit. Enjoy!

I have a question.... I just made this but into cupcakes. They are cooling so I have not yet tried these. It calls for 1 1/3 oz. of lime jello. Is that really the amount? Mine are NOT green at all! Or is it the 3 oz packet of Jello? Someone is asking for these for their wedding and i'm doing a trial run and not real sure of the color they are! They look like yellow cake :(
Cake and glaze were very good - frosting was way too sweet. Next time I will make a different frosting.
This was delicious ! It was tart and the icing was sweet. I made it in a 9 x 13 baking dish. My husband and I loved it. Definitely a keeper.
